This recipe is a STAPLE in my house.  I honestly make it at least once a week.  Kula Baby will always eat it, no matter his mood.  I turn a blind eye to the fact that he is eating the green stuff because it is attached to the yummy bread and cheese topping 🙂

  • 1 cup broccoli finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup lima beans (I used organic frozen lima beans)

  • 1/2 cup organic spinach chopped
  • 4 fresh basil chopped (or 1/2 tsp dried basil)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil organic, unrefined
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs use crushed up rice chex (or and organic brand for gluten-free version)
  • 1/4 cup milk or milk substitute--you want the breadcrumbs to have a little moisture or the topping turns out dry
  • Pinch sea salt
  1. In a frying pan, saute oil garlic and onion for 5 minutes until tender.  Add broccoli and lima beans and saute 7 minutes or so until tender.
  2. Add spinach and basil and saute for 2 minutes.  Add veggie broth and heat for another minute or two.  Sprinkle with salt.  Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. For topping: Combine breadcrumbs, cheese, milk and stir.
  4. To cook: Add veggie puree to a small baking dish and top with breadcrumb mixture.  Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.  Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
